Monash Freeway 

 

The Monash Freeway stretches from Tullamarine in Melbourne’s north all the way south to Berwick and on to Frankston. It takes in many of the outer metropolitan areas, including Dandenong in Victoria, where my family lives. This stretch of freeway is notorious for accidents, particularly on the Dandenong and Reeves roads interchange. The ‘Dandenong’ option on the Monash Freeway is often taken, particularly by those who use public transport and arrive at work later in the morning than peak hour drivers.

The Monash Freeway is Melbourne’s busiest road, and is the gateway to the city from the eastern suburbs. The highway’s intersection with Dandenong Road is set for a major upgrade, as part of the Monash Freeway Upgrade project. The intersection will be a major bottleneck for traffic, and will require significant re-engineering, including a new ramp for cars and two dedicated bicycle lanes.

If you’re driving from Melbourne down the highway to Monash, exit 35A will take you onto Monash Freeway. Monash Freeway leads you directly to Monash University, and gives you access to the university’s main campus, which is about 11 kilometers southeast of Dandenong. The Monash Freeway interchange with Monash Road is just a few kilometers north of the university.

The Monash Freeway is Melbourne’s major east-west highway, running from the Eastern Freeway in Kew to The Princes Freeway in Clayton. It is one of the most important roads in Melbourne, connecting Melbourne’s central business district with its western suburbs, including Dandenong. The freeway runs through the suburb of Doveton, home to Monash’s Clayton campus.

The Monash Freeway, or M1, is a 2.1km elevated freeway in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, that links the Eastern Freeway to the Westgate Freeway. The freeway, which has been designated as part of the Princes Freeway Road Network route, was opened in October 2007, and forms part of the Melbourne Metropolitan Rail Project between the city’s northern and eastern suburbs. The freeway is for use only during daylight hours, as the underpass below it (including the Westgate Freeway) is for use only during non-rush hour periods.

In 1983, the Monash Freeway opened as Melbourne’s first orbital freeway, connecting the major suburbs along the eastern side of the city from Narre Warren to Dandenong.

The Monash Freeway (also known simply as the Monash Freeway) is an expressway in Melbourne, Australia, that links the Melbourne central business district with the eastern suburbs. It is the busiest route in Melbourne, with approximately 55,000 vehicles per day. When it was built, it included a limited access controlled section, and now carries unrestricted traffic. The freeway was built from 1978 to 1986, and was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1986. Like most freeways in Australia, the Monash Freeway is fully grade-separated and has four lanes each way in each direction.
